Just a small note that the entry deadline for submissions to the Indie Game Challenge has been extended from October 1 to October 31 2009, according to the official site for the competition. GameStop, The Guildhall at SMU and The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS) are offering over $200,000 in prizes to the winners, so the extra month is definitely a bonus for any developers who are looking to prepare a more complete build of their entry before submitting it for the contest.

We've done a basic summary of the rules and regulations back in June, and it has to be mentioned as a reminder that the competition is only open to U.S. residents only. Do observe that physical copies of your game and pitch videos have to be mailed to the organizers before the new deadline date in order to qualify as well.
